Set in downtown manhattan urban, THE LOSERS' membership tells the tale of Martin Sierra, an unfortunate author hooked on the personals. His trip brings us into the East Village, pre-9/11--and involved with Nikki, his dream lady, who is still unimaginable romantically but turns into his good friend and confidant in the course of his illuminating misadventures.

TARRIBLE. Something we both know. Something international. The Muppets. " I did know it. I knew it from a school band competition and so in the gloom of that dark cellar I pressed my lips to the mouthpiece of the flugelhorn and began to play. Dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dee dee dee dee dee dee duh duh duh duh duh duh duh It's time to get things started Why don't you get things started On the Muppets Show Tonight Jerry found a pile of giant margarine tubs, then took a pair of the rector's gumboots, emptied the straw out of them and drubbed like an animal on the tops of those tubs.
